Vincent Kompany has confirmed he will leave Manchester City this summer.
The Belgain led the Citizens to a historic domestic treble at the end of this season, having earlier won the Premier League title and EFL Cup. Bringing his eleven-year reign at the Etihad Stadium to an end, Kompany gave City his best this term, scoring the thunderous goal that helped his team emerge EPL champions.
The 33-year-old scored 20 goals in 360 appearances for Man City in all competitions, having joined them in 2008 from Hamburger SV. Kompany through an open letter on Facebook described his exit as “unreal” although he divulged that it was a decision that was bound to take shape sooner or later.
“I am grateful to all those who supported me on a special journey, at a very special club. I remember the first day, as clear as I see the last. “I remember the boundless kindness I received from the people of Manchester. “I will never forget how all Man City supporters remained loyal to me in good times and especially bad times. Against the odds you have always backed me and inspired me to never give up.”
